Martinez v. Cape Canaveral Cruise Line - $1,760,000
Our client, a cruise ship worker, was injured when a fellow crew member threw a laundry bag weighing approximately 80 pounds over a railing. It struck our client on the head and knocked him to the floor. He suffered severe trauma and after more than $300,000 in medical bills, was left with permanent speech and swallowing disorders.
The cruise line denied having available insurance coverage due to bankruptcy proceedings that were underway. Our firm revealed that coverage did exist, and on the morning that a trial was set to begin, the cruise line settled for $1,760,000.
